Combi Catalyst (Preparing for Baby Guide)



Since Wyatt's arrival, just a few short weeks ago, I have been hooked. I have been in awe of this little guy. From all of the little noises that he makes to how he seems to be growing a little more each day. I find myself holding him for hours and talking to him, completely loosing track of time. I have been taking in every little moment that I can, because we all know that this time with a new baby goes by way too fast. On top of me being completely mesmerized by baby Wyatt, I am also in the process of trying to loose all of that baby weight, which can be a challenge, especially when you are breastfeeding. A activity that I missed when I was on bed rest and love to do is shop. I can spend hours at the mall, just walking around and looking at anything and everything. For me, having a good stroller to take with me to the mall or anywhere I may choose to go shopping, is a must have when you have a baby. I personally not only have to have a great shopping stroller that is easy to get around in and has the storage capacity for me, but I also love to go shopping in style. Recently I was sent such stroller, one that is the perfect stroller to take out when shopping. I was sent the Catalyst Stroller by Combi. The Catalyst is perfect for putting baby Wyatt in, from the bassinet feature, which is perfect for those times that he is awake, to the travel system, to the toddler ready seating, which are all features you will get with this stroller. I love having the bassinet for Wyatt, so when I am shopping he can relax and take a nice nap, and is a perfect feature to have during this adorable baby stage! Then when I am going in somewhere, and he happens to be asleep in his Combi Shuttle Car Seat, I can easily attach the car seat to the Catalyst and go on with my shopping, with out disturbing my little Wyatt!

I love that as Wyatt grows, this stroller is made to grow with him. So once we are out of the oh so adorable and cuddly baby stage, we can go right into the fun and exciting toddler stage with out batting an eye. With the multi-position toddler seat, Wyatt can continue to shop with mama in style and in comfort as well. I can also choose to use the front bar when we are starting to get into those big boy toddler stages, then as he grows I can easily remove the front bar so that Wyatt has the room he needs to remain comfortable. With the expandable canopy, I can keep the sunlight out of his eyes while we are doing some serious shopping outdoors, like when mommy hits all of those must see sidewalk sales or when the Farmers Market is open in the mornings! Then for mommy, I have the telescoping handle, which makes pushing this stroller easy for myself and for my husband as we switch off. Having the telescoping handle, prevents those parents who are not short like myself, from kicking the frame, which makes the whole operating and steering experience of this stroller one that parents of different heights can enjoy. The other feature, that I had mentioned as a must have when I am looking for that perfect stroller to use for when I am shopping, is the large basket. I know that when I am at the mall, especially with the holiday season creeping up on us, I need that storage. It is a must have in my book, and the storage that the Catalyst offers is perfect for this mama's needs, from the mall to the Farmers Market, I can load up and not have to worry about running out to the car to unload after each store I go to due to no where to store the items I purchased! So if you are in the market for a stroller that has the classy bassinet feature, but are also looking for a travel system, and also needing a stroller that can be used for a toddler as well, then you are going to want to check out the Catalyst Stroller from Combi. You can get all of these strollers that parents end up getting when they have a baby, without going and buying three different strollers. Also, to get the full experience of the travel system feature, you are going to want to get one of the compatible car seats like the Shuttle by Combi, which are not only compatible but also look great together!

Love the stroller but I think your little one would benefit from your carrying him in a baby carrier (sling, wrap or frontpack like ergo, beco or Boba) so that his little neck gets proper ergonomic alignment.

That stroller looks so nice! Looks like it would be an extremely smooth ride for baby.

I love this stroller and it was a sure winner when we looked at it at BBB. As for the neck support, you could also just add an infant insert.
